Ribbons & Bows...

Well HELLOOO 37 weeks!!! Every pregnant chicks favorite two words I'm sure "FULL TERM" yay! We made it, we made it! I'm soo happy it's finally almost time to meet my little sweet Poesy girl. She is likely measuring around 18.9 to 20.9 inches and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds. She's gaining about 1/2 ounce each day. I believe next week we will find out how much she is weighing at our weekly ultrasound. Today we had our ultrasound and she scored 100% on all her little tests again. She had her hand balled up into a fist resting under her chin like she was thinking and it was just adorable! She is practicing her breathing really good too and is still head down. All of the stress test we have been doing every Friday are good and my blood sugar is under control. All good things! We have our bags packed, nursery ready, washed baby clothes, house cleaned, carpets shampooed, car seat installed, paperwork ready, what am I missing?? The anticipation of not kno

I love my little shrimp!...

My due date is just four short weeks away, March 10th! My once-poppy seed that I didn't even know existed until 5 months later could probably be able to breathe on her own if she was born right now. Most of her systems are in working order at 36 weeks and need just a little more time for her lungs to fully develop. Her lungs and breathing are doing good each week we go for our ultrasound so that is awesome! She is now the size of a honeydew and I can tell that she is having less room to move around in my belly. Most spots of my tummy are hard and you can feel her pretty much anywhere you feel around. During her last ultrasound we were told that she has a lot of hair and that makes me super excited!! At this point all I can do is wonder what she is going to look like beside the fact that we have got a pretty good idea with the 4-D ultrasound we had done. It's more like is she going to have dark or light skin and hair, green or brown eyes, my dimple chin or her daddy's d

So last week I was 35 weeks along...Growing, growing, growing. My uterus has grown about 1,000 times its original size, a number that might sound exaggerated but true! During week 35 baby girl was the size of a coconut. She's about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, she won't get much longer, but she's plumping up. Everyday I get more and more excited to meet my little peanut. Her room is completely ready, all her laundry is washed, folded, and put away! We just need to install her carseat - which we were going to do last weekend but didn't. Lately I have been having back pain and it's getting harder and harder to get out of bed. My feet, ankles, and legs are now looking real similar to tree trunks and I can now feel the weight of my belly. Other than this cold I have been trying to get rid of I feel pretty good. The first weekend of this month Jeremiah and I took some Valentine's Day themed pregnancy photos together. I'm glad we were able t
